I'VE JUST TOLD MAMA GOODBYE (Curly Kinsley / Slim Sweet) Hank Williams - 1949 Also recorded by: Johnny Duncan; Miki & Griff Each year on Mother's Day The rose I wore was red But today I'm sayin' my first prayer Mama's lying on her dying bed I've just told mama goodbye Mother's Day has turned to night Like the flowers of May she withered away And my red rose is turnin' white This is the dreaded hour We all must face some day Yet there's consolation in my heart She will bloom in the Master's bouquet I've just told mama goodbye Mother's Day has turned to night Like the flowers of May she withered away And my red rose is turnin' white Her time has come to go And there's nothin' I can do Only hold her hand and say goodbye Mama's day with her children is through I've just told mama goodbye And knelt beside her bed I heard her say I'll meet you some day Where the white roses turn to red (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2010)
